The iKini

It is probably something of a niche market.  But help is at hand for those fed up with their iPod running out of power when lazing about in a bikini. (Pics)


It comes in the shape of a $200 swimsuit made of solar panels that can charge everything from an MP3 to a camera.

The designer, New York-based Andrew Schneider, is even hoping to create a pair of trunks that can cool beer.


He spends up to 80 hours creating each bikini with 40 paper thin flexible, photo-voltaic panels and conductive thread.

The user can even take a dip. ‘You just need to be dry before hooking up,’ he added.


Anyone worried about getting a shock from their swimwear needn’t be.

‘You wouldn’t even feel the charge,’ insisted Mr Schneider.
